After i reinstall XAMPP (full with xanpp DIR) & Install new 1.7.0 version (Windows instalator).
Instalation finish Ok.
I start Apache from control panel. - Apache service started...

It is not clear here if you uninstalled by making sure all XAMPP components were stopped including the XAMPP Control Panel (XCP) and all XAMPP services were uninstalled (stopped) first before deleting the xampp folder, which must be done before trying to install again. It is also advisable to reboot after uninstalling/installing any services.

This forum search may help with the fix as this has been discussed many times before.

It may look like a shortcut named my - simply drag the file into your text editor, notepad for example, and read or edit the this file which in reality is the my.cnf file and again a forum search would have helped with this.

Make sure you know what you are doing when you edit this file as any wrong configs may result in errors you may again not know how to sort out.
